People are going crazy – or as one may say, “off the rails” – so let’s see if anyone gets stabby. Or plays with a gun and accidentally shoots themselves in the belly, setting into motion the ascent of Brian Austen Green. Dear Lord, let’s hope it is not number two.

This week, Silver goes full bore loopy, and Adrianna realizes she may not be terrible at this kid thing. Plus, Brandon is back… just behind the camera. Tease!

After a long, long time away (including, evidently, two episodes my DVR didn’t get), everyone’s favorite zip code is reopened for business in episode 17, “Life’s a Drag”.

This week, Naomi tries to snake her way into new guy Liam’s life, Silver gets carried away with looooooooove, and Hip Teacher Ryan finds himself in another awkward spot. Or so the previews would lead us to believe. Let’s see, shall we? (more…)

Fret not boys and girls, we didn’t abandon the quaint hamlet of Dillon – we’re just a little late in getting caught up. So, maybe we missed last week’s episode in which JD McCoy established himself as QB1 and Saracen had an emotional breakdown. And maybe this is coming to you a few days later than normal. But, we’re gonna get caught up and get back on track. If you still believe that as long as you’ve got clear eyes and a full heart, you can not lose…hit the jump (more…)

As I did my weekly research into infectious disease and genetic disorders for these here recaps, I came across the depicted case of Bumbling British Doofusism. Your resident gun-slinging, cavalier, loose cannon, maverick, Lone Ranger doctor’s first wedding. It could just be me but she kind of looks like Cuddy.

On this week’s episode, the new hot fellow Thirteen far surpasses the old hot fellow Cameron in terms of insane, totally unfathomable sexual exploits. Cameron was always trying to bang House which was cool, but Thirteen has gone and one-night-stood with a drug addict with an extensive medical history. Oh, and it’s a woman. For this she blames her Huntington’s. Don’t click that if you don’t like spoilers. Do click the jump if you like girls making out with each other, structuralist suspense, and/or pistachios.

The Office “Baby Shower” Recap Thursday, October 16, 2008

The prospect of a baby shower makes some men want to flee. (Little Miss Sunshine, 2006.)

The prospect of a baby shower makes some men want to flee. (Little Miss Sunshine, 2006.)

As a brand new father of a beautiful baby girl, I can tell you that a baby shower is a stressful, sometimes awkward event. There were six people at the shower that I didn’t know. Flat out had no clue who they were, and moreover spoke to for about five minutes without ever figuring out their names or just how in the world they knew my soon-to-be-born daughter.

So what could potentially make a baby shower more awkward than it inherently is? How about if the baby’s “father” knows he isn’t the father, yet wants to be the father figure anyways? How about if said “father” is Michael Scott? I think this funny speaks for itself, so go ahead and click that jump, you know you wanna.

Ladies and gentlemen, welcome back to my season’s worth of recaps for How I Met Your Mother. Welcome, once more, to Urban HIMYMs.

So here’s the deal:

For the entire year, I’m going to stick with the ten things manner that we had at the end of last year.  Certainly, as a starting point for discussion.  (Warning, this is going to suck relative to my efforts at the start of this…)

Apologies for a lack of entry last week.  I <3 NJ was a fantastic episode, but with Parent-Teacher Conferences, I could not find time to do it.  If you’d like to make notes about it, please feel free to do so in the comments for this episode.

And away we go… (more…)

Ladies and gentlemen, welcome back to my season’s worth of recaps for How I Met Your Mother. Welcome, once more, to Urban HIMYMs.

So here we are, the last one of the season.  The last episode, my last recap.  I have to admit, I’m sad to see the season end, but I am not exactly displeased at the idea of no longer having to do recaps.  The two hours these things end up taking me to write, well, my passion for spending that much time breaking down a show has waned.  Particularly for so few eyes to be seeing it.  I do want to say that I greatly and deeply appreciate the loyal readers and commenters.  I would have probably just quit doing this without notice were it not for you guys.  So I promise you I will give it one last solid effort, and we’ll reevaluate come the fall.

So here’s the deal:

It’s AP week, so even if I wanted to go more fully into the notions of this episode, I think I am forced to stick to the ten points agenda.  Which is good, it keeps me brief.

Ladies and gentlemen, welcome back to my season’s worth of recaps for How I Met Your Mother. Welcome, once more, to Urban HIMYMs.

So here’s the deal:

I’m going to try and keep this brief in the outline, and then just move to my notes.  I’m going to stick with the ten things manner that we had last week.  Certainly, as a starting point for discussion.

Before I do that, however, may I just give a giant freaking hat tip for the team that puts Cobie Smulders together week in and week out.  Hair, makeup, wardrobe, all of you take something great and just make it awesome.  Well done.

Ladies and gentlemen, welcome back to my season’s worth of recaps for How I Met Your Mother. Welcome, once more, to Urban HIMYMs.

So here’s the deal:

1). I’m not feeling well.  My throat is killing me over here.
2). I went to the Tigers game last night, cutting into my recap time
3). I have excellent commenters who will provide fodder for me and back me up.
4). I’m gonna admit, this episode was not among my favorites.

So, with all of that in mind, I am going to just do the ten things I learned from this episode, sort of a great chain of being, or screaming, or something

You have to hand it to Carter and Bays.  They know that, at their core, sports are a deep rooted part of American life.  Tonight’s episode fuses sport with the thrill of the hunt and ends up being one of the funniest episodes of the season.  Ladies and gentlemen, The Bracket.

Ladies and gentlemen, welcome back to my season’s worth of recaps for How I Met Your Mother. Welcome, once more, to Urban HIMYMs.

If you watched CBS over the last week (and since there was a small thing called the opening rounds of the NCAA Division I Mens’ Basketball Tournament on, I suspect you might have done so.), then you know that this week’s How I Met Your Mother is the one featuring a special guest appearance by one Ms. Britney Spears. Some might call this a win-win, HIMYM perhaps attracts new viewers who want to see Britney while Britney tries to prove that her life is not some form of Mike Patrick endorsed train wreck. However, the good people over at CBS’ promo department decided that they wanted to make absolutely, 100% sure you were aware of this guest appearance and used the high rated vehicle of the NCAA Tournament to help promote it, leading to some blowback. I personally thought that it was probably a poor choice to use the line in question, especially because I was sure that the conversation she was having with Barney was likely to end up being a throw away line. I was right. I don’t feel good about that, but I was right. As a ratings grabbing ploy, it also worked, drawing HIMYM‘s largest audience since the Season 2 premiere.

That said, at the core of this guest star vehicle is a really good episode, one which is just overflowing with what The Bad One referred to as “Continuity Porn”. So we’ll see how this breakdown goes.

Ahh, Saint Patrick’s Day. A wonderful time to enjoy being Irish, to celebrate that ancient heritage, and for most people, to go get stinking drunk. But, since I had the flu, and a nasty bit of the flu at that, I was laid up, kept in, and was able to get to my recap of the first post-WGA strike episode of How I Met Your Mother. I’m a little rusty at this, so please keep that in mind. Thank you.
